Christian Richter is the amazing photographer that chases abandoned places in Europe and takes some of the most incredible photos, which would most likely fit the AbandonedPorn description.

He goes all over Europe in search for the most unique places and buildings, in order to capture their unique charm. Whenever you enter an abandoned building, you feel like the air surrounding you is trying to tell a story. What happened after everybody left? Who is lurking in the dark? What used to happen in this room back when people were around?

Unless you are in an abandoned hospital or another specific building, it’s pretty hard to imagine what activities used to take place in the ensemble. However, when you’re in an abandoned house, you can let your imagination work and try to think about how the former owners used to live their daily lives in here.

“When I was young, I fell in love with abandoned buildings. After I got a camera as a present, I started photographing the beauty there.” Christian Richter wrote on Bored Panda.

We simply love it when we come across photographers like Christian, who are incredibly passionate about their work and who manage to bring out the best even out of old long forgotten buildings.

Photographers like Christian tell a different story through their photographs. A story about what happens when humans are out of the scenery…

“I mostly photograph empty buildings with great staircases or interiors. I simply adore old decaying architecture, their patterns and textures – they remind me that everything is impermanent. Abandoned architecture photography is my ongoing project and I often travel around Europe looking for abandoned buildings.” he added.
